Google Apps for Education

KATE is working with Trigg County and Hopkins County schools to provide training on Google Apps for Education and the use of Chromebooks in the classroom. This shared learning initiative will also help KATE to provide GAFE resources and training to other Kentucky teachers.

Maker Education

KATE is exploring the Maker movement in education and the ever more affordable technology that goes with it. KATE will be presenting at both the KySTE and ISTE conferences in 2015 about Maker technology and how it can be used by students and teachers in the classroom.
